Kiri Thode landed an outstanding, powerful double culo to claim the Chiemsee European Tow-In Championship 2015, in Podersdorf, Austria.

Jose "Gollito" Estredo, Taty Frans, Tonky Frans, Kiri Thode, Max Matissek, Adam Sims and Julien Mas were some of the names that made it to the finals of the European Tow-In Championship 2015.

The organization of the event decided to grant windsurfers three runs, with the best move counting so that riders could take more risks. Level of difficulty of the tricks and style would determine the winner.

Adam Sims opened with a very stylish and clean double spock with a perfect landing that scored him 48.5 points straight-away. Kiri Thode topped this with a powerful double culo that was seen for the first time in the European Tow-In Championship.

Tonky Frans landed a beautiful burner 540 rotated mostly in the air but, in the end, Thode would take the crown (he has a Dutch passport and can therefore be European champion) and the top honors.
